I personally like all the wacky buildings popping up near the Périphérique or Maréchaux boulevards that are replacing a lot of the old, rusty industrial buildings/facilities that were there or a lot of the plain, often neglected, working-class apartment buildings that were around such industrial areas. I hear some people say how it's ugly, too modern, poor design, etc., but for me it's better to see that than what used to be there.

Those who take the RER B in the direction of Mitry Claye or aéroport Charles de Gaulle would notice that when the train exits the tunnel from Gare de Nord,there is a large active construction site near the rails with certain structures already popping up. Does anyone possibly know what this project is?

So, it has been confirmed: François Pinault will be taking the Bourse du commerce building on a 50 years lease and arrange it as a place to show his contemporary art collection and host his foundation. The architect will be Tadao Ando and the works should end in late 2018. The city hall's total contribution to the project is 21M euro.

Let's hope migrants and associations don't squat it and block it for months to make their message pass through.

^ tbh, one art museum more (or less) doesn't make much of a difference for Paris. I was hoping for something new, something more unconvetional if possible.
